Instant Granite Reviews and Inspiration by Interior Design Bloggers and DIY Enthusiasts.

“Can you transform a bathroom by changing most of the surfaces, including counter tops, for under $100? YES! Can you transform a drab Formica surface to a beautiful faux marble counter top for less than $50? YES!


I hated these black countertops, and I I figured I would have to wait until we had the money to replace the entire vanity.  But low and behold you’ll never guess what I found…INSTANT GRANITE!” [Read Entire Post]

“I read every review, watched every video, and gained all of the information I could before I ordered. I ordered just enough for our island so I could test it out and make sure it would be worth purchasing enough for our whole kitchen.

We installed it and for the next week I did everything I could think of to make sure it would wear well. I placed hot pots directly from the stove onto it, I allowed dishes to slide across, i allowed small spills to sit for a while. I used it as much as I could and in all honesty, it held up nicely much to my surprise! I was so happy with the way that even in a small amount it had already started to transform our kitchen.” [Read Entire Post]

“The most recent change in the kitchen is the updated counters. Instead of buying new counters right away I decided to use Instant Granite to give them a temporary makeover while we move some other remodel projects, that have higher priority, to the top of the list. Instant Granite is a peel-and-stick vinyl that gives counters the look of granite or marble.” [Read Entire Post]

“It’s called “Instant Granite”…there are a lot of different versions of it but this is I guess the first and best one that was made. It’s a sort of heavy vinyl covering. Its by a company called “Appliance Art”…So I believe they make covers for appliances as well (Like if you wanted your white refrigerator to look stainless steel…they got you covered)..” [Read Entire Post]

“I think the most impressive kitchen renovation was the Instant Granite. If you have never seen this, here are some pictures of the process. It is basically a vinyl wrap. It looks pretty dang good for being a sticker! It took my husband and I about 4 hours to do with 2 kids and a dog running around.” [Read Entire Post]
